The Dodge Challenger is the first five-passenger, two-door coupe produced from Chrysler's proven rear-wheel-drive platform that delivers the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger. Developed with Dodge's credo of "bold, powerful and capable," the Challenger delivers a modern two-door muscle car.
The Dodge Challenger design team stayed true to the concept while drawing upon elements from the original Challenger. The result, a bold, aggressive muscle machine that blends nostalgia with modern Dodge style.
On the exterior, the long, raised performance hood with scoops and recessed grille with round dual headlamps are reminiscent of the original Dodge Challenger. The bold A-line, or character line, that runs from stem to stern gives the Dodge Challenger an instantly recognisable muscle car profile. Retro dual rectangular exhaust outlets complete the look from the rear.
